Abstract

This paper explores the use of an Audience Response System (ARS) in undergraduate Statistics modules at our Institution. This technology allows students to respond to questions during lessons using a handheld response device and then lecturers can immediately view the results of student responses and display them on the screen. We discuss how student engagement with this ARS at Greenwich helps to promote active involvement in learning and greater interaction in the class. Specific usage methods in teaching and their impact on student learning and engagement are described. We found that this implementation provides an attractive way to make students engage with their lesson. Student feedback suggests that this approach provides them with a better learning experience making the lessons more interesting to follow and take part in.
